I've heard of some issues with these two products and wondering if they will or will not fit. Some people have told me that the large heat spreaders on the memory can interfere with the fan on the cooler. Thanks in advance!

Whether or not the CPU cooler will interfere with your memory sticks depends partially on the layout of your motherboard and the proximity of your RAM to the CPU. This cooler is not quite tall enough on the bottom that if it overlaps with some of your memory slots, then the cooler will not have sufficient clearance for you to use certain memory sticks with taller heatsinks.

However, this isn't really much of a problem if you have additional memory slots that you can move the memory sticks over to - that's what I had to do with my G.Skill Snipers on an ASRock Z77 Extreme4.

Hmm, so for the most part I should be alright if I just move my ram to the 1st and 3rd slots, thanks a lot!

There's no problem with the EVO, the fan is height adjustable, just unclip it from the cooling fins and raise it to where you need, I have Trident X under a EVO (4x8GB) on my SB 3570K (Rock Z77 Extreme 4) with no problems, running at 4.7 - has no ill effect on cooling by raising it a bit, think I've put most all models of DRAM out there under EVOs at one time or another
